left luggage at STAR


We are planning to do a couple of overnight trips including also the mountain climb but don't want to be dragging round all our baggage. As we will be staying at STAR before and afterwards does anyone know if there is any facility to leave our more bulky luggage at the STAR whilst we are away.

Hi mr. rush, it is the Shangri-la resort, of course, there is a facility to leave your more bulky luggage(make sure to safekeep the other half of the baggage tag), and I even suggest, leave your original passport and other valuables in the hotel safe; to be on the safe side, since you will be mountain climbing, do carry some form of identification, even a photostat of your passport or driving licence.

If you are carrying a knapsack, insulate all your belonging with the use of a carrier bag, to keep them dry; you mentioned "the mountain climb". will that be referring to Mount Kinabalu, if so, really carry light and only essential, because further up the altitude, even the lightest bag, tends to feel heavy, and bring some aspirin in case you develop headaches due to the thinning air.

Did exactly this on our first visit. We left eveerything at Star after a short stay there and spent three nights on the mountain. When we returned we collected our gear and transfered to the Rasa Ria. On our most recent visit we had one night at STAR and left our luggage for over a week before we returned.
